Google updates Gmail for Android, brings hashtags to web search
Google has released an update to its Gmail app for Android, alongside a revamped web search with new social-networking features. The Gmail app (<A href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gm">free</a> Play Store) brings a new interface that is intended to have a cleaner design when in conversation view and while checkmarking multiple messages, while the app now clearly shows when account sync is off. <br />
<br />
The company has also improved hashtag support for its basic search experience, as noted in a Google+ <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294928==https://plus.google.com/u/0/102280279666307949456/posts" rel='nofollow'>post</a> that was <A href="http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/25/google-search-hashtags-google-plus/?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000589">spotted</a> by <em>Engadget</em>. When users enter a hashtag search, a Google+ sidebar presents relevant results from Google's own social network.<br />
<br />
Users can click on links to search the hashtag on other social sites, however the sidebar lacks support for results from competing services such as Facebook and Twitter. <br />
<br />
The Gmail update is already available from the Play Store, while the hashtag search is initially limited to users in the US and Canada.
